RANDOM SHOTS: S&R Cagayan de Oro now open

Thousands packed the grand opening of S&R Cagayan de Oro today as the famed membership shopping begins its operations in Northern Mindanao.

After the formal blessing and inauguration, S&R opened its doors to the public at exactly 10:00am. But hours before the opening, traffic was already building along Kauswagan-Bulua Highway as vehicles have started to line up to enter the warehouse’s compound.


Customers start to queue along the side … waiting their turn. The first shoppers had to wait a couple of hours before being let inside. However, customer inflow started to normalize after the opening but still with long lines of eager and curious shoppers. Waiting time was somehow reduced to a few minutes.



The inside was packed and all counters are full of paying customers.



Accordingly, some customers have come from Bukidnon, Lanao and Agusan provinces.


Even the famed pizza has customers lining up.



Customers were of all ages…




Meanwhile, many customers are still applying for membership.




The parking area is full. S&R had to deploy a number of security personnel around the compound and along the perimeter.



Many customers have parked along the National Highway.


This is just the first day, more customers are expected to arrive this weekend.

      Makro and SNR are 2 different stores. While Makro was selling commodities that you can find in your neighboring Sari-Sari stores and Gaisano, SNR items are mostly imported goods.

      So no comparison at all.

        Simply comparing the shoppers on the 1st day and not the store itself. Let us see if S&R will be able to retain most of its members ☺ the same with SM before naka cause pa og traffic along Pryce. But now mingaw na.

        • jil says:

          Airport transfer from Lumbia to Laguindingan is the primary reason why the foot traffic at SM uptown is now not the same as before.

        • Ruby says:

          Girl consider the location sa SM, tuyoon kaayo. Kining S&R accessible man ug sikat pud. But soon mag open nang SM nga dako diha sa sentro, makita nimo dili pud mabitin sa customers.

      The shop is still packed, the parking areas are still full of cars. With almost half of Mindanao a captured market, the volume of customers is already expected to be this big.
